TTC/Irregular Cycle
We are trying for another baby now and my periods were fine and regular until July, when I got my period on the 11th –  as usual (I have a 29-30 day cycle). My next period was then on the 14th of August, it was late (34 day cycle) and I had started to feel nauseas a bit before so I really thought I was pregnant. Blood tests showed I wasn’ t. In addition to the nausea, I had breathlessness and sensitive breasts, and dull period pain. When i got my period in August, all the nausea went away.

I then got my last period now on 20th September –  very late (37 day cycle). Again I suspected pregnancy but then i got my period but it barely lasted two days and was very very light. I am now experienceing a bit of nausea and dull period pains occasionally but i have had my period already.

In August my GP checked my hormone levels, pregnancy, bladder, kidneys, thyroid, and cysts but everything was normal. She suggested I see my Gynae again (I saw him end of January for my annual check-up). I have an appointment for 9th of October but would like to know what it could possibly be that is causing this? I am not stressing about falling pregnant again but want to have it resolved sooner rather than later before I do get freaked out over it.

I do believe I am ovulating as I keep getting a light/egg white coloured and consistency discharge at about the right time (approx 14 days before my next cycle should be due –  sometimes though it happens a couple of times,2-3 days apart.

Any suggestions before my appointment on the 9th?

Many thanks in advance

It may be that you are ovulating a it later than usual. This is not uncommon every now and then. It has only happened twice, so don't panic. See what your gynaecologist says on the 9th.
